People seem to think that in the days before indoor plumbing one had to go to the outhouse in the middle of the night, during a snowstorm and so on. But thanks to the chamber pot and pieces of furniture that is not so. One could go in the warmth of one's own home. Plus it turns into an attractive end table when not in use.
Not sure how old it is but probably from when indoor plumbing was less common (duh). Anyway according to my old-o-meter it is old.
The holders for the chamber pot are adjustable. In the last photo I put a much smaller pot in and I was able to make it fit well as would a larger pot.
It may be called the mission style commode chair.
